The Next Great Baker Finale

  • 2

Anyone catch the finale, it was awesome when Ashley went off on Paul, thought she was going to blow it with that move. Glad she still won, her finale cake was so much more professional looking than Gretel Anne's. Didn't like the way GA was trying to sabotage her competitors by changing the oven temps, hiding sheet pans and who knows what else. Karma is a b yatch.

  1. I didn't watch the entire season, but I did catch the last few episodes. I was pulling for either Ashley or Jen to win. I did not like GA's cake at all and her behavior was deplorable. Needless to say, I'm very happy Ashley won.

    1. I never expected Gretel Ann to make it into the finale, and I'm glad she lost. She was so proud of her sabotage and that is awful.
      After about 4 episodes my guess for the final 3 were: Ashley, Chad and Jen. That Buddy let Chad go and kept Gretel Ann was IMO a terrible mistake. Chad was one of the most professional contestants, did not cry or scream, and would have made a great team with Ralphie, Juan and some of the other decorators already at Carlo's.
      Also, I'm confused that anyone of Buddy's family would think that Ashley's remarks to Paul were "unprofessional". After watching Cake Boss since episode 1, I'd say her behavior was right in line with all of Buddy's sisters!
